GASKELL: 'WE'LL LEAVE NOTHING ON THE FIELD'

05 Aug 2015

HEAD coach James Lowes is preparing to welcome back star man Lee Gaskell ahead of this weekend’s Super 8s opener against Sheffield Eagles.

The 24-year-old was enjoying a fine year, having scored 17 tries in as many games, before a broken jaw during June’s rout of Doncaster prematurely ended his regular-season campaign.

But after being passed fit to feature last week, following three weeks back in full training, Gaskell is readying himself for competitive action once again.

And the ex-Salford man is confident the Bulls will make a “flying start”.

“Watching from the sidelines has been extremely frustrating and I can’t wait to get back out there,” said Gaskell, who is sponsored by Hudson Foster Financial Services.

“We are looking to make a flying start this weekend, we do not want to be chasing come week four or five of the Super 8s.

“We need 80-minute performances now – for the next seven weeks.

“That is what we have been working towards all season and we are going to go out all guns blazing, leaving nothing on the pitch.

Without playmaker Gaskell, the Bulls suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of Sunday’s opponents Sheffield last month.

However, the stand-off insists he and his teammates will not go into their Qualifier opener focused on revenge.

“We are not holding any grudges against anyone and are not trying to beat them because they beat us,” added Gaskell.

“We are going into the Super 8s trying to beat everyone.

“It is a case of taking it week by week and not looking at any game in particular.

“They are all going to be hard games. The games against the Championship sides are the ones we should be winning. 

“Against the Super League sides, we are going to push them for 80 minutes and try to get what we need.”

LANGLEY: IT ALL STARTS NOW FOR THE BULLS

04 Aug 2015

FORMER Bradford favourite Jamie Langley insists the Bulls’ season “starts now”, with the opening game of the Super 8s just FIVE days away.

The back-rower made over 250 appearances for the Bulls in 12 seasons at the Provident Stadium, before joining Hull Kingston Rovers in 2014.

After one season with the Robins, the former Great Britain international dropped down a division to sign for the Eagles – who finished third in the Kingstone Press Championship after another excellent campaign under Mark Aston.

Bradford and Sheffield have shared the spoils in their two regular-season meetings in 2015.

The Bulls claimed victory on home soil back in May, before the Eagles exacted revenge at the Keepmoat Stadium last month.

James Lowes’ men play host to the South Yorkshire side on Sunday – in round one of The Qualifiers.

 “We are really looking forward to it, as the pressure is off for us now,” said Langley.

“The big thing for us was to make the top four and qualify for the Super 8s. We can go into it with no expectations and no pressure.

“We will probably be able to play our best rugby because of that. Bradford will be looking to kick on and really push for the top four.

“So there is a little bit more pressure on the Bulls going into this. They are getting a few key men back, which will be a big thing for them.

“This is what they have been building towards all season.

“It all starts now for them, whereas we can just go in with no expectation and just really enjoy ourselves.”
